ICD-10 Has Incorporated Some Major Changes Related To Aftercare Situations for Trauma Wounds. Get the Lowdown HERE!

Wound care coding has always been a challenging topic in home and hospice care. There are so many different types of wounds and each requires the physician to identify the type of wound to be treated.  However, other clinicians can also identify the stage or severity of the wound.  Accuracy in identifying and correct ICD-10-CM coding for wounds is important to ensure quality care and accurate medical records.

Join expert speaker Judy Adams, RN, BSN, HCS-D, AHIMA approved ICD-10-CM Trainer in this session to learn about the changes in the ICD-10-CM related to coding wound care. ICD-10 has incorporated some major changes related to aftercare situations for trauma wounds and describing wound care for those common lower leg ulcers. The session will discuss the proper coding in ICD-10-CM for a variety of types of wounds—emphasizing on the changes within the ICD-10-CM data set to enhance your ability to use the correct codes.  Judy will cover the guidelines and codes for an array of normal, routine healing and complicated wounds through case examples.

Key talking points in this 60 minute session will include:

  • Discussion of new guidelines for coding lower extremity non-pressure ulcers that require an additional code to further describe the location and severity of non-pressure wounds in ICD-10-CM to allow greater specificity in coding wounds;
  • The impact of laterality on coding wounds;
  • Examples of coding for the common lower extremity ulcers such as: skin ulcers, stasis ulcers, and atherosclerotic wound;
  • Changes in available aftercare codes along with illustrative examples.  (Hint: ICD-10-CM no longer has surgical aftercare codes for the musculoskeletal system or trauma wounds.); and
  • Examples of selected complicated wounds such as infected &, dehisced surgical wounds, cellulitis, and trauma wounds.

Who should attend

This program will be particularly useful for anyone who provides, codes or review records involving wound care in post acute care settings such as nurses, coders, QAPI coordinators/staff, compliance staff and supervisors.
